A new ski film to usher in the season.

While Bozeman’s unseasonably warm October and lack of snow may have winter enthusiasts pushing their big-mountain daydreams to the backburner (some of the more zealous among us were already making first turns by this time last year), Days of My Youth will undoubtedly turn up the heat on ski-season fever.

A Matchstick Productions (MSP) and Red Bull Media House collaboration, Days of My Youth follows the lives of a group of diehard skiers and snowboarders, highlighting their lifelong dedication to their passion. Two years and three winter seasons in the making, Days of My Youth breaks down hundreds of hours of footage into an innovative project that encapsulates the meaning of winter sports. The film follows the some of the most elite snowsports athletes in the world, including Richard Permin, Mark Abma, James Heim, Cody Townsend, Markus Eder, Bobby Brown, Michelle Parker, and Sam Anthamatten, showing the triumphs and hardships of their unique lifestyles.

“After 20 years of filmmaking, it’s been great to step away from the year-to-year model and work on something so different than what we have done in the past,” executive producer Murray Wais said in an interview with Freeskier.

Viewers can expect mountain panoramas, faceshots, impossibly steep descents, huge park hits, and a healthy dose of humor, in classic MSP fashion. The film was shot on-location in British Columbia, Alaska, Peru, Colorado, and Utah with narration from Alan Watts, along with personal insights from the profiled skiers and snowboarders.

Hosted by Cold Smoke Productions and the Montana Adventure Film series, the premiere will kick off at 7pm, Thursday October 16 at the Emerson Cultural Center. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $10 at Ph.D Skis and Cactus Records and will be available at the door for $12. Proceeds of the raffle will benefit the Montana chapter of Wounded Warriors. Bozeman is one of 80 stops on the film’s premiere tour, which will continue on across the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
